such serious consideration we have taken the difficult decision to move Rainbow
Junktion to takeaway only from Monday 16th March.
small team of volunteers will cook Monday, Thursday and Friday and we will
serve takeaways to anyone that comes between 12-2.30pm. As well as putting out
basic supplies for people to take home. A decision will be taken about Friday’s
bistro on Thursday.
hand washing and sanitising procedures will be in place. We have taken this
decision in order to stop the spread of the corona virus and will do everything
in our power to keep feeding people at this difficult time.
you want to help then please bring us all your takeaway containers as we will
not have enough to last very long. Or check out the groups below who are
organising help for the community.
Food for All & All for Food on Friday 13th March at 7pm is an event aiming to support and connect local communities by raising awareness about food waste and by bringing people from different cultural and social backgrounds together under the same roof to enjoy a delicious night of diversity.
The event will be held in partnership with The Rainbow Junktion Cafe (charity cafe providing meals from food that would otherwise go to waste on a pay as you feel basis) and some Leeds University Union’s cultural societies, in the scope of raising funds and awareness, as well as highlighting the diversity of the Leeds community. As far as food is concerned, there’s going to be a buffet of various countries’ cuisines, and guests should pay as they see fit – come to enjoy!
Vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free options will be available. Allergens and ingredients listed on food labels.
Please bring cash with you ! Everyone is welcome regardless of ability to pay, however a £5 donation is suggested.
Hosted by the Intercultural Ambassadors as part of University of Leeds, World Unite Festival.
The Intercultural Ambassadors programme is supported by funding from Santander Universities.
We are very excited to welcome back the unbelievably talented local singer/songwriter Lewis Burner to our next Rainbow Junction Bistro on Friday 6th March at 7pm.
There will of course also be a delicious three course dinner made from food saved from the bin and transformed by our clever volunteers. We will have all the main dietary options covered and everything will be pay-as-you-feel.
We will also be holding a collection of warm clothes/other useful things for amazing local group Helping Hands who are doing outreach to the sadly ever growing homeless community of Leeds. So if you have any good quality and clean clothes that you could donate then please bring them along on the night.
Please book a ticket to reserve your seat and then pay-as-you-feel on the night.
We are excited to be collaborating with fabulous local organisation Racial Justice Network in our next Bistro on 7th February.
